[Python-Dev] [PyPI] Why are some packages on pypi.python.org/simple, but have no page?

Hello Python developers,

Could anybody please answer the following question?
(I have asked it on http://stackoverflow.com/q/28010799/562769, but Steve
Barnes thinks I should ask it here)

I am currently analyzing packages on PyPI. I use
https://pypi.python.org/simple/ to get all package names and
https://pypi.python.org/pypi/numpy/json and similar to get the metadata.

However, there are 514 packages (e.g. abu.rpc, acid, about-pandoc,
about-numtest, ...) which do not have the https://pypi.python.org/pypi/
site, but are on https://pypi.python.org/simple/.

Why is that the case?

Best regards,
